This study employed case study approach to explore the practical experiences of community engagement of the humanities and social sciences disciplines in universities from the typical perspective of the field of design. It explored the Humanities, Field, and Co-Creation (HFCC) Project initiated by the Department of Information and Technology Education, Ministry of Education, Taiwan. Specifically, this study interviewed university project team members from five departments or institutes of fundamental humanities and social sciences to investigate field settings, planning of a community engagement curriculum, and interdisciplinary collaboration with those in the design field, as well as entrepreneurship cases and considerations. Research results revealed that controllability and stakeholder complexity are considerations related to field settings. Moreover, field assistants played a crucial role in field settings. Impressive community engagement curricula were divided into long-term fieldwork for "narrative translation" and "co-creation of social practice" that facilitated intersubjectivity and could be treated as marketing innovation and organizational innovation. In terms of interdisciplinary collaboration between those in humanities, social sciences, and design, the integration of design thinking into social topic-oriented courses was observed, with the discipline of design serving as a facilitator and project manager. Furthermore, the roles of designers in design application-oriented curricula could be categorized into co-designer and inspirer. Regarding case analysis on entrepreneurship, this study found that the value proposition of sociology-based entrepreneurship cases was relatively scarce, thus bringing uniqueness and legitimacy. Sociology-based entrepreneurship was regarded as a culture-deploying model to accumulating social capital for entrepreneurship and the key point was organizational innovation that would build a mechanism to foster entrepreneurship in a university.
